thanks for the info. Apols for being so naive, I am a very infrequent long-haul flyer and plan to visit my daughter in Australia. I am flying economy from London to Cairns with a four hour connection wait in Hong Kong. I looked at Cathay Pacific's website, and it appeared from that that only their business and first class pax could access the lounges. I have a gold amex card and wondered whether this might get me into a lounge. Do you know if I can pay the admission to the lounge when I arrive in Hong Kong? I'd be really grateful for any assistance/info you can give me.
